The founders were believers in the Bible, known fact. They had schools in churches not just for a need for space but scripture was a big part of their education.
I am not sure what research you have done but this nation was founded by Bible believing leaders. They were not perfect and clearly made mistakes. We even showed the ten commandments in a court room. I am only speaking where we were not where we are. I agree it is like other countries, the difference was our belief is truth. Never to be proven false, even Darwin found major issues with his theory and openly admitted it at the end of his life. You should believe what you want, cannot force religion on you. I can only state how we started, do not worry...we are not there now.
The founding fathers had school in a church and education was based on Christianity. I am not giving an opinion on the rest, only that we started as a "Christian" nation. The entrance to first grade called the "Primer" was based on scripture.
Obama faith as a child and though not announced is Muslim. He celebrated the last day of their Muslim celebration In the White House. This pastor did not say anything about voting for salvation or seeing you in hell or heaven. He only talked about issues that conflict the word of God and where each stood. He supports Romney because of this but did not tell them who to vote for. I think it is blown of of context and people have added words. It was a discussion on where they stand based on Christian values.
Jesus spoke directly to the leaders when immoral things were going on. He openly spoke in the temple and addressed sin. He did not do it to judge but address the sin and show a way to break free from it. We should share anywhere when things come against our faith. People have a choice to speak and listen. The problem is many have no foundation in anything so they live in fear that a sermon or person can make people do something they would not normally do. It takes courage to stand for righteousness and I am glad someone had the courage to stand and speak their faith in God. We are not a certain party but the body of Christ, those who accept Him.
Someone has to take a stand. As an American we should have freedom of speech. I applaud the pastors courage and whether you agree or not does not matter. You chose which church to attend and they have a right to defend their faith and speak against immorality that comes against their foundation.
